  • Stp Import from Pro/E

    Hi all!

    I have problems importing stp models created in
    Pro Engineer.(missing surfaces)
    I would be very grateful if someone running version 3.7
    or higher could try importing the files.
    In the attached zip archive there is 2 files created with
    different settings.
    I am running 3.5 MR2

    3.7 MR3

    I just opened both files.
    I didn't see any holes, except on both parts, a very small (possible) hole at the back of the oval slot.

    I am running a different version than you however.

    Lately, it occurs to me
    What a long, strange trip it's been.

        I had a similar problem. I am not much of a Pro/E jock, but something must get lost in translation.

        I had to get the direct Pro/E import tool (File/Import/Pro_Engineer) from Wilcox. That did resolve all my issues.

        Maybe there are ways around this in Pro-Engineer because some of my (always very large) models came in successfully through STEP, and some never worked. I have no idea why that would be. I had never any luck with the IGES translation. Again though, after I could import native Pro/E, all my model issues evaporated.

        Sorry for not being more helpful....

          Did you try exporting this as a igs file. sometimes that works when step doesn't . the nice thing about Pro E is it is so easy to alter the cad model origin to the way you have the part set up on the machine.

            Just imported both these models and there is no problems.

            I use ProE daily and have found sometimes step works best and othertimes iges. I have always attributed this to a combination of things mainly the way the model is created and / or the selections that have been made when exporting to another format.

            I am Running 3.7MR3 for info

            Good luck

              I have now solved the problem!

              I tried a lot of different export configurations in pro/e
              and found a setup that works.

                Whow, tell me: how did you fix it? I'd like to know! What is the magic setting? Please post some more instructions! I have had the same problems.

                  Put the config file in the directory that you are
                  exporting the stp file to.
                  At least this works for me (Pro/E wildfire 2.0)

                    Running 3.7 MR2. Everything looks good to me. Is there a particular area that shows up bad for you?

                      We also use WF2.0. But this does not seem to work for me. Oh well, I have the direct Pro input feature now. I guess I must be happy.

                      What happens in my case is that complete surfaces or cuts are missing. It seems as if in the translation some of them just get skipped. I tried to figure out whether that was something that Pro does, but I got nowhere. Some models have this problem, some don't. It seems to get worse if the more parts are assembled to the part (like the fixture and all it's details).
